  3. Enter a Profile Name for your account.
  4. Select either Checking or Savings from the account type drop-down menu.
  5. Enter your bank routing number.
  6. Enter your account number, and confirm the account number.
  7. On the next page, authorize the account by agreeing to the terms and conditions, and select Submit.

Stipend Recipients: To sign up for stipend payments via direct deposit, there is a separate direct deposit system to which you'll need access. You can find instructions on our Graduate Stipends page.

Need help finding your routing or account numbers?

The easiest way to find your information is by referencing a paper check. Routing numbers, which appear first on the check, are always 9 digits long, while account numbers may be up to 17 digits long. Please contact your bank for confirmation, as separate routing numbers may be used for wire transfers and e-payments.
